OFFICE OF EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

The staff provides brochures and information published by government agencies pertaining to emergency preparedness. The staff of this office judiciously plans, assigns and coordinates all available resources in an integrated program of prevention, mitigation, response, preparedness, and recovery for emergencies of any kind, whether from man-made or natural sources or enemy attack.
